Friends of the Marin County Free Library

We are a nonprofit 501(c)3 group of volunteers dedicated to making our library system and its programs the best they can be. Anyone who enjoys the pleasure of a good book or the myriad of benefits and services of the library should be a friend. Our non-profit tax ID is 23-7098721.

The Book Place is re-opening Tuesday, May 19, with curbside pickup.  

We're reopening Tuesday, May 19, with curbside pickup! Make book requests via our email,, or leave us a phone message, 415-209-0212 (speak slowly, clearly, and have both title and author). We'll let you know if we have the book(s), and the total charges. We'd prefer a personal check, otherwise cash or PayPal. We moved our popular titles and newer books INTO THE FRONT window for viewing and selection, and we have some fun Grab Bags available (books by category, author, or topic).

We'll also be accepting book/material donations at our sorting room in the back parking lot (enter off 7th Street). Stay in your car, and volunteers will take a look at your donations before accepting. We strongly encourage you to review our donation guidelines (website) before packing up and coming over. Space is limited. A phone call beforehand to check on available space would be ideal; we know you've been holding these things for awhile and we hate to disappoint!

We've taken all precautions to make your pickup a safe and enjoyable experience. Come by to see us!
